Spiced Apple Cider Sangria

A New York Love Affair :: Spiced Apple Cider Sangria

Looking for a specialty cocktail to serve this Thanksgiving? How about this “Taste of Autum” sangria recipe I stumbled across over the weekend! All my favorite fall smells and tastes in one little alcoholic beverage. It’s light, bubbly, and the perfect balance of sweet and spice.

Spiced Apple Cider Sangria

Directions:

  1. Core and slice your apples (I used a mixture of red delicious, granny smith, and honeycrisp apples for added flavor and color)
  2. Cut half of the orange into 1 inch thick wedges
  3. Use a carrot peeler to skin 3 2-inch orange peels off the remaining orange (leaving off as much of the white part as possible)
  4. Combine all the ingredients, except the ginger ale, in a large pot or pitcher
  5. Cover the mixture with an airtight lid or plastic wrap and refridgerate for a minimum of 4 hours (up to 24 hours if you’d like!)
  6. Optional: After it has been refridgerated, strain the sangria mix, sifting out the spices and orange peels, and then return the liquid, apples and orange wedges to the pitcher. Personally, I enjoyed the overall look of the drink with the spices bobbing around, so I didn’t strain it.
  7. Pour the liquid into the glasses about halfway, add apple and orange slices until the glass is about 3/4 full, and then top off with ginger ale
  8. Enjoy!
